Default My bird keeps flying away from me when I try to get her on my finger!! HELP

My tiel, Cali, and I are extremely close... Back in the end of January, I moved out of my parent's house (where my bird is) to an apartment with my boyfriend and I couldn't bring her because they don't allow pets BUT, I would visit and she would be fine, nuzzling me, loving me, coming to me... Then a couple months ago, I noticed that whenever I come to her cage or put my finger in her cage for her to perch on, she FREAKS out... and when I manage to take her out, she flies away from me and everytime I try to get her again, she flies away again? Is she mad at me? If so, why now? Or is she having abandonment issues? Also, I should mention that since I left, my mom has mentioned that she's gotten meaner? Do you think she's mad at me?? Please help

Default Yes, my mom takes her out everyday to sing to her and changes her water and food...

She also tried to pet her and she will hiss and bite?

How often have you been visiting her? If not often, she could have regressed.

Just curious do you have a younger sibling that could be messing with your tiel?

No I do not, I am the youngest. My mom visits her every day too unless I come over, so she's not neglected or teased... She interacts with people nearby, like call and respone, if you call her name, she'll tweet back in response, but I don't know why she's doing this, I just want some answers...

She could be going through a hormonal thing and being bratty...
